F/V ASHLYNE Safely to Port with Coast Guard Escort

The crew of F/V ASHLYNE sent the Coast Guard a call for help early the morning of April 30, reporting that ASHLYNE had begun listing and losing stability as they headed for port, and later reporting that the listing was worsening, as the original listing had caused their 70,000 pound catch of fish to shift in the fish hold. ASHLYNE was losing stability and in danger of capsizing.

The Coast Guard successfully escorted ASHLYNE from about two miles south of the Columbia River mouth to port at Ilwaco, WA, in swells of eight to twelve feet while pumps on board kept the vessel from flooding. ASHLYNE will be kept in port for a Coast Guard inspection in order to determine the cause of the listing and flooding and to ensure that the required repairs are made.

Things happen fast at sea, and the ASHLYNE crew was fortunate to be able to contact the Coast Guard in time to receive help before the situation became life-threatening.
